It's National Dog Bite Prevention Week: in order to prevent dog bites, make sure you adhere to leash laws, make sure your puppy gets the proper socialization skills early in life to prevent social altercations, and also be sure you know how to recognize dog body language to prevent any chances of a bite.
Even exotic pets can get overweight. Bring your exotic pet in today for Dr. Credit to assess and help guide you with a healthy diet for your critter.

petmd.com As long as pet parents take their time and follow a few simple rules for introducing cats to dogs, there’s no reason why felines and canines can’t develop a harmonious relationship. Here's how to start.
“Uno” is Dr. Germann’s cat. He is a happy 9 year old and had some routine blood work done, as well as an added cardio proBNP test to assess the health of his heart muscle. Unfortunately, the proBNP value was extremely high so she took him to CVCA in Leesburg to have the cardiologist look more closely at his heart. He was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy which is a “silent killer” in cats. They don’t always show any outwardly signs of compromise but with heart supportive medications, we are hoping Uno can have many more happy years! The cardio proBNP is a test we like to add on to routine blood work in ALL cats over 8 years old to screen for this ailment!
Spring is just around the corner. If your pets aren't already on all year-round flea and tick prevention (as they should be), now is the time to start! We carry Nexgard chews and Seresto collars for dogs and Bravecto topical for cats. We are also offering 10% off Lyme vaccines for dogs for this month.
PLEASE STOP FEEDING GRAIN FREE DIETS TO YOUR DOGS!! There have been recent studies of the food causing dilated cardiomyopathy, which is heart disease. These diets have a lack of the mineral taurine which is very important for heart health. Any damage is reversible once the diet is discontinued. If you have any questions or need suggestions as to what diet we recommend, please call us at 703-729-0700.
